The board of the Pride in Penrith Lottery have awarded Penrith Swimming Club with a grant of £1425. The grant, which was presented earlier this week to Ian Powley, President of Penrith Swimming Club is a welcome cash injection for the club who were in need of some funding to help support the growth of the club.
The grant will be used for essential equipment required for galas, training and water polo safety, hats and nets. Penrith Swimming Club has provided swimming tuition since 1880 and gives opportunities for young people aged 4-21 in Penrith and the surrounding area to develop their swimming skills, gives them the opportunity to take part in competitive galas and water polo. The club is run by volunteers who give up their valuable time four nights every week, therefore additional support from the Pride in Penrith Lottery was a huge boost to the club’s members.
